:icon_danc Well arighty then... Cheryl and I have registered for our room at the Hilton for the summer tour. Rooms are filling up; register soon...

Hey my parents are going and so am I. Somebody say fresh duck???

Rocco - your Aunt Miriam and I traveled the Summer Tour route this weekend. We checked out the ducks at Friendly Farm. They might let you in their pond, but most of them looked bigger than you are. And, the geese and swans at the Hilton Estate are downright mean,....

So, tell your dad to pack you a meal...you ain't likely to have duck....

The rest of us will have plenty of food, wine, and fun. The hotel has given me an additional block of rooms, so, everyone register NOW for the Summer Tour 2009.

There will be a wedding in the hotel the night we are there. Our band of merry tourers might try to get that photographer to do a group shot....Instead of a graduation picture.

HAHAHA yeah Rocco and I saw your message this morning.

But beware he is a "Morkie" you know - a fearless critter chaser of all kinds, sizes, speeds, and genders. He is an equal opportunity critter chaser.

And irresponsible beyond belief . . .
What car coming? I am going to chase that squirrel over there?
What that isn't a BIG dog? You say it is a deer? What is a deer, I betcha I can take him.
Whoa look at that HUGE dog, let me at him - what did you say . . a horse - who cares let me at em.
Whatta ya mean cats have claws that cut, scrape and hurt and make me bleed? Let me at that little white fur ball.

BUT no duck chasing HUMMMMM. And mean ones at that? Sounds like a challenge has been issued?

Just kidding. Rocco is "NEVER" allowed off his lead which is usually firmly wrapped around my wrist.
He is a wild hair and that is one of the reasons why we get along so well.

He also has a special surprise to show you and his new Aunt Miriam on the next tour, but no hints I am sworn to secrecy.

See you . . . .

and almost 30 cars on the tour.

Anyone can't make up their mind? I will hold another 10 rooms.....

I'm in. But I won't make it to the armored vehicle museum on APG. Instead, I will be visiting some friends in the area I hadn't seen since high school.

BTW, if you're a HHonors member, you may be able to upgrade your room to one on their executive (concierge) floor for a few bucks more.

I made a last minute reservation with the hotel and got the discount :) I haven't signed up for the event though because I need to figure out how to make my gf an associate member...

Anyone going that's around my age? I'm 24, gf is 23.

Besides PERFECT weather - it only rained at night when we were inside the hotel - here are some of the critical BMW issues discussed in the bar after dinner....

a. What does it really mean when the tour instruction says "RIGHT out of the restaurant". ((4 of our group went LEFT))
b. What do you see in your rear view mirror when the blonde passenger in the blue convertible behind you is reaching into the back seat to straighten out a cooler that has overturned, and she is wearing a dress?

You missed a great time.

08-23-2009, 09:00 PM
a. Military right, folks!
b. I plead the 5th....
Another thing discussed:
c. Go ahead honey, wind-out the engine.

A great time indeed. Bob and Miriam laid out a fantastic route particularly leg #2. M5 exhaust is a good smell when you can still see thier tail lights.

Thank you to the Tourmeisters and my lovery nagigator, the aforementioned blonde.

Kudos for another great tour, Bob! My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend, especially the part about the rain holding off Saturday until AFTER we'd arrived at the hotel. This was only our second club social event, but it was a very congenial group and we felt right at home. We're now hoping to clear our calendars for the Fall tour!



08-24-2009, 08:55 PM
"Tanks" for organizing another great tour, Bob!

We chickened out and took the wagon - er - I mean "touring" - instead of Zed because of the uncertain weather forecast but still had a nice drive. Afterall, the wagon is no slouch, at least in the handling department, with sport package and summer tires.

We had a great time Saturday. I am always looking for a reason to open the garage door and bust out the track toy, Mercy and Rocco also!

Both legs offered wonderful scenery, great views and some very fun opportunties for BMW spirited driving, (of course within the assigned speed limits!!!!)

Rocco enjoyed the scenery the most - hanging out the window the entire day.

Lunch was great and a cool bottle of white wine at the end of a long day was just the best.

Thanks for all you efforts.

John, Mercy and Rocco (associate member 395139B)
